  • Include JavaScript files
<script src="video.js"></script>
<script src="videojs-vlc.js"></script>
  • And add this new tech to the player:
data-setup='{ "techOrder": ["vlc"] }'

Supported content type

Supported content type will depends on your VLC installation, but basically it should support almost all audio and video formats.

As this cannot be determined in advance, this plug-in always return success on file type support test. It's why you should always put it at the end of techOrder property.


Building the plug-in is optional, you can directly use /lib/videojs-vlc.js file but it is good practice to be sure your environment is well configured. It will also simplify your test as you will be able to use /example.html sample file directly after build.
